As if this weren't enough, an evil beast pounds and screams from a locked room adjacent to the lab.Brilliant but borderline psychotic surgeon does secretive, experimental work with limb transplants and tissue rejection drugs, much to the chagrin of his surgeon-father. When he crashes his car and his fiancee is decapitated, his research - far from complete - is put to the test. His focus then becomes finding an appropriate donor body to make his fiancee whole, while the current and failed experiments in his basement laboratory grow restless.

By PHILIP SHENON and ELISABETH BUMILLER NY Times
WASHINGTON, Jan. 26 — The investigation of Jack Abramoff, the disgraced Republican lobbyist, took a surprising new turn on Thursday when the Justice Department said the chief prosecutor in the inquiry would step down next week because he had been nominated to a federal judgeship by President Bush.
The prosecutor, Noel L. Hillman, is chief of the department's public integrity division, and the move ends his involvement in an inquiry that has reached into the administration as well as the top ranks of the Republican leadership on Capitol Hill.
The administration said that the appointment was routine and that it would not affect the investigation, but Democrats swiftly questioned the timing of the move and called for a special prosecutor.
The timing of Mr. Hillman's nomination "jaundices this whole process," Senator Charles E. Schumer, Democrat of New York, said in an interview. "They have to appoint a special counsel. I think there will be broad support for one."
Representative George Miller, Democrat of California, called the timing "startling" and said, "You have one of the chief prosecutors removed from a case that has tentacles throughout the Republican leadership of Congress, throughout the various agencies and into the White House."

Mayor of the Arts in Eugene Peter Herley sent me this great pic of the Mr. Softee Ice Cream truck proving to me that they are still going strong on the East coast, referencing my playing of the Mr. Softee theme song on last weeks show- he was also blown away that my parents met Wonderama's kidee show host Sonny Fox on a Caribbean cruise in the 60's.

Democrats want ethics committee to probe 'day trading' allegations
by John Byrne from RAW STORY
Published: January 19, 2006
After a comment by Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) on Air America's Majority Report Wednesday evening, RAW STORY has learned that House Democrats are pushing the ethics committee to investigate allegations of congressional offices providing privleged information to Wall Street investors.
On Air America, Slaughter alleged that "day traders" in the offices of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) and former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) had aided such investors. She mentioned as a specific example that individuals got advance notice that an asbestos bill was not going to emerge from the Senate.
An article that ran below the radar in November revealed the "day trading" practice, in which little-known firms use sources in Congress to glean information relevant to publicly-traded stocks.
Independently, RAW STORY has received word that such activity -- which involves passing on information to stock brokers on how the House is going to vote on legislation that affects large companies, such as Defense Appropriations bills -- is a practice that may go beyond a single individual or congressmember's office.More at RAW STORY.

I would convene a world wide summit, perhaps at the U.N., to discuss a plan to convert U.S. military spending into funds for economic development. The United States would pledge to take the lead,with a promise from our (former) so called enemies to match us in disarmament and shifting of funds toward humanitarian projects.

I would call the leaders of all the major U.S corporations to a week long Presidential workshop to hammer out:
2) Increased Minimum Wage
3) Tax Penalties for Outsourcing Overseas
4) Tax Credits for U.S. Job Creation
5) Alternate Energy, Fuel Conservation and Less Dependence on Foreign Oil.
6) Workplace Safety
7) Rewards for Environmental Ecological Controls and Safeguards
8) Tax Incentives for Profit Sharing and Bonuses
If the leaders of these corporations consider themselves Patriots who want to save America, they should be willing to convene to discuss solutions.

Here is a picture of Roky Erickson's son, Sumner, Brian Wilson and Roky in 2003.
Here in Eugene, Ore., Texas bands of the Sixties are held in the highest esteem, and no band out of the vast truthful reservoir of Texas Sixties bands is lauded more than the 13th Floor Elevators. I've made sure the Elevators are played at the very least twice per two-hour program on KWVA 88.1FM Eugene, Ore., where I work. I can make sure of this because I play whatever I want and always play plenty of recordings by the Chessmen, the Briks, the Penthouse 5, and the Exotics, all from Dallas; Zachary Thaks Liberty Bell from Corpus; the Outcasts and Stoics from San Antonio; and Neal Ford and the Ramadas from Houston.
Even with that heavy competition the Elevators not only get more airplay, they sound even greater and more powerful to me every time always. The history, the mystique, the feeling of Stacy Sutherland's super-charged steam-drill opening attack on the fast version of "Tried to Hide" has a complete thrillness to it all its own that I'm sure Elevator fans have no problem connecting with. Or the very first time I heard "Slip Inside This House" 20 years ago. At the very end of the song after Roky stops, Stacy starts this really smooth Jimmy Reed riff only sped up and so just leaped out at me and still does that I realized that's the only ending that could ever be heavy enough for the most amazing hypnotic intensity flow eight-minute song in music history, let alone Elevator folklore. It was then I realized only Stacy could do this almost impossible job, that is lead guitar for the 13th Floor Elevators. God bless you, Stacy.
